Türkiye Residence


Foreigners who come to Türkiye with a Tourist Visa can stay up to 90 days within 180 days without obtaining a residence permit. However, foreigners who want to stay longer than this period must obtain a residence permit according to their purpose of stay.

A residence permit enables you to live in Türkiye, study, work, get tax numbers, and open a bank account.

Who Needs a Türkiye Residence Permit

Every person that moves to Türkiye with the intention to remain in the country for more than three months needs to get a Türkiye Residence Permit upon arrival. Without a residence permit, your stay in Türkiye will be considered illegal.

       You are exempt from a residence permit pursuant to reciprocal or multilateral conventions to which         the Republic of Türkiye is also a party.

       You are a diplomacy or consulate officer that holds office in Türkiye.

       You work for representative offices of international establishments in Türkiye.

       You have a valid work permit.

       Your identity card contains one of the following tags:

               “international protection applicant”

               “international protection status”
